Allergic rhinitis & allergic conjunctivitis is commonly referred to as simply having allergy or hay fever. It is a very common problem in the US affecting an estimated 30 - 40% of the population. Symptoms are similar to a cold or the flu but they are not caused by viral infections. A cold or flu usually does not last longer than 10 - 14 days. Its symptoms usually improve at the end of the first week. In contrast, allergy lasts longer and tends to recur very often especially during allergy seasons. This condition tends to be lifelong due to our own immune cells reacting to small particulates in the environment. This type of condition seems to be more prevelent in the last 50 to 60 years likely because of the changes in the microenviroment in our body that leads to the development of more of the immune cells causing allergies.

When you keep having a cold after a cold characterized by congestion, runny nose, headache, tiredness, and cough together with itchy nose, itchy eyes or ears, it is likely that you have allergy that has not been treated. Untreated allergy might lead to more debilitating conditions like chronic sinus infection, loss of smell and taste, constant headache, bad breath or halitosis and bronchitis. Several small particles in the air can cause allergy. The most common ones are tree/grass/weed pollens, mold spores, and pet allergy due to proteins in pet danders, skin flakes, saliva, and urine...
